DOES EVERYTHING

 

Since there is no handset with this printer, you cannot make calls from it, only faxes.

For a low cost all-in-one, this printer is pretty good. I have printed glossy photos with it, sent and received faxes with it, and of course printed and copied items with it. Overall good printer, and replacement cartridges are very low priced on...

You have to buy a usb print server to make the printer networkable, there is only a usb port on this machine. Also, the scanner/copier is not flatbed but automatically fed, so you are limited as to what you can scan or copy. If scanning/copying...

Brother MFC-3240C-Does MFC stand for Magnificently Flagrant Crap?

Amazed by Positive Reviews

 

I mean, its not the worse printer but the frustration over the cartridge price almost led me to throw it out the window. No really. I've had it for maybe 6 months. I hardly ever print anything. When I do, its usually black. Last week I print ONE ...

What a Headache!

 

I love this printer. In fact I still have it, but I can't count the times I have nearly thrown it in the garbage. I was originally very impressed with this MFC. So impressed that I bought another one for my husband's office. It does everything and does...

scan is a little difficult ; numerous quirks listed above ; LCD display is too dim

Another Cheap Printer (Correction--A Great Cheap Printer)

 

This is another device that is sold by a manufacturer to sell other products, in this case, ink-jet supplies. I paid only $39.00 for this after MIR, which is less than the cost of the supplies. Regarding supplies, two things attracted me to this ...

No automatic on-off for printing.Cannot name PDFs.Default photo detail marginal.No USB cable.
